Hulk and Power Pack #3 Review by (August 3, 2022)

Review: Cute all-ages stories are a lot of fun for those who haven’t lost a sense of joy in the simple stuff. A lot of action too with a surprising climax, setting up the very cool next issue. Sadly, there is no Mini-Marvels story to add the needed note of silliness which serves as dessert to the all-ages main course.

Comments: Part one of two parts. Stories set on Earth-5631. Stories take place immediately after SPIDER-MAN AND POWER PACK (2007 series). Heroes seen on the last page include Iron Man, Wolverine, Ares, Spider-Man, Human Torch, Ms. Marvel, Doctor Strange, Sub-Mariner, Wonder Man, Sentry, She-Hulk, Daredevil, Mr. Fantastic, Spider-Woman, Thing, Iron Fist, and Colossus. Colors credited to Naoko Kawano and Gurihiru. Title comes from the song by the Muppets with the subtitle being a parody of M.C. Hammer’s “Stop, Hammer Time.”

Hulk and Power Pack #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

A SHIELD team led by Dum Dum Dugan is in trouble when Ivan Blonsky, the Abomination, escapes from their custody while being transported to a new prison. Dugan wants to get him back themselves, without alerting any of the city’s superheroes….

The police are trying to arrest the Power Pack kids (Alex/Zero-G, Julie/Lightspeed, Jack/Mass Master, Katie/Energizer) because they don’t believe the kids’ story that the weird robots the kids claim trashed the city then teleported away. So Power Pack escapes, planning to hide out until the fuss blows over….

At home, the kids see on the news that a huge green monster is rampaging throughout the city and it is assumed to be the Hulk. The kids don’t believe Hulk would do that so they go out to capture the real monster to clear their names and the Hulk’s. They fly to the center of the devastation and find Hulk there. Feeling betrayed, they don’t believe Big Green when he denies responsibility. Abomination arrives to challenge Hulk and Hulk and Power Pack work together top take down the ugly guy. Dugan and SHIELD arrive to take the monster away and ask the kids to keep this a secret. After they are gone, a huge team of heroes, led by Iron Man, arrive to confront the Hulk and Power Pack….
